The Star (Reversed) – General meaning
Inverted, this card loses many of its positive connotations. Now shows lack of faith, despair, discouragement, discouragement, sadness.

The Star is more about a test of faith than a negative result in itself. The result can be negative if you do not use all your mental and internal capacities to understand that they are normal and natural cycles of life, that many times we need them to grow and learn, to come out stronger than before and you are now wiser with this knowledge and learning.
You may feel now that you are on the wrong path in some aspect of your life, be it in love, at work, in family life, or perhaps in all of them, but you must understand that this situation is momentary, perhaps not so serious and extreme as you live or feel it and that it is a necessary step.
